Music For Insomniacs’ eight tracks were each named after and inspired by a different sleep wave – from Alpha to Zeta.

“In today’s world, it’s harder than ever to let go & find sleep. So kick back and let this pastel soundscape from the NYC synth rocker, TM™ ♪ drift you off to dreamland like it was 1984…”, says Mandel.

Originally released as a private press cassette in 1984, Invisible City Editions’ reissue of Music For Insomniacs marks the album’s first time on vinyl.
